  1. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Pacers, Rockets, T-Wolves and Sixers on top

    Nov 4, 2013, 2:04 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New Orleans Pelicans

    The first few weeks of the Power Rankings see crazy fluctuations — teams that aren’t really that good start off hot, teams that are good start cold, so teams bounce up and down the rankings like they are on a bungee cord the first few weeks. Eventually things find their level. But this week was…

  2. Lob City is not dead: CP3, Griffin connect on back-to-back-to-back alley oops (VIDEO)

    Nov 1, 2013, 10:26 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Clippers

    The reports of Lob City’s death have been greatly exagerated. Golden State lost to the Clippers Thursday night in a wildly entertaining game because of 24 turnovers (11 by Stephen Curry) and with all the changes in Los Angeles one thing remians the same — turn the ball over and they will get out in…

  3. The Extra Pass Thursday Roundup: Stephen Curry could be greatest shooter ever

    Nov 1, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Clippers

    How good were Stephen Curry and Chris Paul in the shootout between the Clippers and Warriors last night? It’s almost impossible to be hyperbolic, both about the performances and the players themselves. Don’t believe me? Try this one on for size: Stephen Curry is the best shooter of all-time. You’re squirming, aren’t you? It doesn’t…

  4. Thursday night NBA grades: That Chris Paul guy is pretty good

    Nov 1, 2013, 2:50 AM EDT

    BKN-WARRIORS-CLIPPERS

    Our grades from Thursday night around the NBA, or what you missed while listening to bad British announcers call Game 7 of the Heat/Spurs Finals last year…. Chris Paul, Los Angeles Clippers. That was the kind of performance that reminds you CP3 is the very best point guard in the NBA — 42 points, 15…

  5. The Extra Pass Wednesday Roundup: Talking tanking (or not) in Phoenix

    Oct 31, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

          PHOENIX — After the Suns traded their projected starting center in Marcin Gortat to the Wizards in exchange for an injured player who might not play this season and a future first round draft pick, and did so less than a week before the start of the regular season, it doesn’t exactly…

  6. UPDATE: Andrew Bynum has been medically cleared, will play in opener

    Oct 30, 2013, 6:25 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    Things change fast — just ignore everything we wrote earlier today (based on what was being said in Cleveland this morning): Just this afternoon Andrew Bynum has been medically cleared to play and will be active for the Cavaliers as they host the Brooklyn Nets Wednesday night, reports Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal.…

  7. The Extra Pass Tuesday roundup: Doc Rivers talks Clippers defensive woes

    Oct 30, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Doc Rivers, Chris Paul

    LOS ANGELES — The long grind of the NBA season is about building habits, building sustainable ways to win that can carry a team through the playoffs. For the Clippers this season, that building focus is on defense (their offense is going to score plenty). Before his team’s opening night game Tuesday the Clippers’ Doc…

  8. Harrison Barnes out for first two games due to foot injury

    Oct 29, 2013, 5:22 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v San Antonio Spurs - Game Five

    Expectations are high in the Bay Area — their beloved Warriors are finally good, making it to the second round of the playoffs last season, then they went out and added Andre Iguodala this summer. But this is not how you want to start the season. Harrison Barnes will be out at least the first…

  9. Nate Robinson isn’t sure why teams overlook him, but he’s sure he likes Brian Shaw

    Oct 28, 2013, 7:08 PM EDT

    Nate Robinson

    When Nate Robinson catches fire, there is no better show in the NBA. What playoff quarter was more entertaining than his 23-point fourth quarter in the first round of the playoffs against Brooklyn in Game 4, when Robinson single handedly forced overtime? He’s the shortest player in the NBA, a fan favorite everywhere and he…

  10. What to expect from LeBron and the Heat?

    Oct 28, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    You’re busy, so I’ll save you some time: a championship.  They’ve won two straight, basically their entire squad is coming back, and their best guy is the most dynamic and exciting player since Michael Jordan.  The Heat have all the tools they need to make a run at a three-peat – but even with them…

  11. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Let the season begin!

    Oct 28, 2013, 1:16 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    To celebrate a new season, we bring you a new set of NBA Power Rankings from PBT. Let the kvetching about your ranking begin! Just remember that this is an exercise in fun — these are meaningless as the NBA has a playoff system to decide who is best. What sport would rely on journalist’s…

  12. Ty Lawson may miss season opener for Nuggets

    Oct 28, 2013, 9:50 AM EDT

    Ty Lawson

    People in the “Denver can again make the playoffs camp” will grant you that Andre Iguodala is gone and Danilo Gallinari will not be back until likely sometime after Thanksgiving, but they say the Nuggets still have a lot from last season’t 57-win team. Such as Ty Lawson… except they may not have him Wednesday…

  13. Report: Andrew Bogut, Warriors agree to three year, $43 million extension

    Oct 25, 2013, 7:41 PM EDT

    Andrew Bogut

    It comes down to this: In the playoffs last year, the Golden State Warriors’ defense was 7.8 points per 100 possessions better when Andrew Bogut was on the court. Stephen Curry is the new star and Andre Iguodala was brought in to be the glue guy and defend the wings, but if the Warriors are…

  14. Wednesday And-1 Links: Cavaliers pick up options for Irving, Waiters, Zeller, Thompson

    Oct 23, 2013, 6:29 PM EDT

    Kyrie Irving

    It’s time for our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points more than Skittles… • If you are rebuilding with youth, rule one is…

  15. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: The Dallas Mavericks

    Oct 23, 2013, 8:46 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    Last season: For the first time in his career, Dirk Nowitzki missed a chunk of the season due to major knee surgery. Dallas started 12-15 without their star German then promptly dropped 8-of-9 after his return, putting them in a deep hole. The result was the players grew “.500 beards” they let grow like they…

  16. Harrison Barnes expected to be ready for Warriors’ season opener

    Oct 23, 2013, 12:34 AM EDT

    Harrison Barnes

    Harrison Barnes had a fantastic rookie campaign for the Warriors — if there’s any doubt, go through the team’s top 10 plays from last season and then we can have a conversation. This year, with the addition of Andre Iguodala, Barnes is likely headed to a sixth man role, at least initially. Iguodala makes too…

  17. Report: Nuggets gauging trade value of Kenneth Faried

    Oct 22, 2013, 9:43 PM EDT

    Kenneth Faried

    The Nuggets are a team in transition. After parting ways with their head coach and general manager in the offseason, they also watched Andre Iguodala leave to sign with the Warriors in free agency. (OK, technically it was a sign-and-trade, but that was purely mechanical.) The plan in Denver is unclear at the moment, so…

  18. Kevin Love brags about winning “the ‘White Guy’ award”

    Oct 22, 2013, 6:23 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    The NBA’s annual GM survey, analyzed by Kurt earlier today, contained few surprises. Who will win the championship? The Heat, as usual. Who will win MVP? LeBron James, obviously. Who is the best center? Dwight Howard, of course. Who’s the best coach in the NBA? Gregg Popovich, surely. Which player makes the most of limited…

  19. NBA.com GM survey predicts another big season for Heat, LeBron James

    Oct 22, 2013, 11:22 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    The annual NBA.com GM survey is pretty much a spot check on the conventional wisdom around the NBA. It’s not the place you see daring picks or gain deep insight. It’s generally a lot of guys picking the favorite. This year’s survey shows the conventional wisdom is “good luck beating LeBron James the Heat.” In…

  20. PBT Extra: Pacific Division Preview

    Oct 22, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    The Pacific Division is fascinating this season. It has a genuine contender (Clippers, I’m higher on them than most), a team trying to get to that level (Warriors), a team that thinks it is better than it is (Lakers), a rebuilding team with one key piece (Kings) and a team all in for the lottery…

  21. Report: NBA near deal to allow local streaming of home team

    Oct 21, 2013, 2:54 PM EDT

    US-TECHNOLOGY-IPHONE 5S-APPLE

    If you live in San Francisco and want to watch Stephen Curry and company rain down threes, you couldn’t just stream it to your laptop or phone. You could get out of market streams — buy league pass broadband and you could stream the Knicks — but not the team in your market. That is…

  22. Young, Iguodala with highlight dunks in Warriors win over Lakers (VIDEO)

    Oct 18, 2013, 11:48 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers' Young reacts after scoring against Golden State Warriors during their NBA Global Games in Shanghai

    Everyone could use a Swaggy P highlight before lunch. Golden State routed the Los Angeles Lakers 115-89 in Shanghai, China, early in the morning here (it was a 4:30 a.m. start in the cities where those teams play). Klay Thompson dropped 25 points to lead a Warriors team that shot 51.1 percent overall and hit…

  23. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Phoenix Suns

    Oct 18, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Eric Bledsoe

    Last season: Believe it or not, the Suns actually had playoff aspirations when the regular season began. The front office believed that Michael Beasley would be different in Phoenix than he had been anywhere else, and mandated that he be given a chance to be a difference-maker in the lineup. Once it became clear that…

  24. Nuggets’ Kenneth Faried suffers right hamstring strain

    Oct 17, 2013, 6:05 PM EDT

    Kenneth Faried

    Kenneth Faried in some ways symbolized the Denver Nuggets last season — athletic and with boundless energy to outwork his opponents, improving but still a bit raw and figuring out how to really play the game. Faried’s ability to bring that same energy at the start of this new season could have been compromised —…

  25. Harrison Barnes out again Friday with foot injury, could send him to sixth man role

    Oct 17, 2013, 11:27 AM EDT

    barnes white sleeved

    On paper it always seemed logical that Harrison Barnes would be the sixth man in Golden State (and he said he was good with that). You don’t pay Andre Iguodala $12.9 million to come off the bench, and do you really want to mess with the Stephen Curry/Klay Thompson backcourt? Still, Mark Jackson was going…
